PvP Discussion With the Devs
 
Lore shared the developers thoughts on the current PvP balance, and also the possibility of a PvP-focused Live Dev Q&A in mid March.

Official Blizzard Quote:

Specific questions are generally easier for us to answer than broad "please talk about "-style posts, but this one actually gives a good opportunity to share some of our general thoughts about PvP at the moment.

Regarding overall class balance: in Arenas, we're overall pretty happy with it at the moment. We've been hearing a lot about the prevalence of Rogue/Mage comps lately, and may end up making some changes, but we're more likely to focus on buffing some underperformers than specifically nerfing anyone right now. To put it another way: Rogue/Mage is (and should continue to be) a strong comp, we just want to make sure there's a good number of other strong comps as well.

We made some changes not long ago to Random BG matchmaking to help with healer balance, and have been very happy with the initial results. There's still some edge cases we're looking to iron out (specifically, we're sometimes seeing games where one team has 2 healers and the other has none), and so we're still working on some additional improvements. So far, though, there's been a very noticeable difference overall.

Lastly I'll mention that we're planning another PvP-focused Live Dev Q&A, probably sometime around early to mid March. We'll get a proper announcement out once we've finalized all the details.

I think they missed a good opportunity with the PvP talents to re-add old spells, or give us some choices. I understand the statement of having less "opportunity spells" to have a more understandable PvP, i'm not on the school who thinks "more binds = more difficulty".

However, i like having the choice to choose or not, especially in a RPG, even if arenas are "out of range" of all the RPG aspect of the game.

 

If you read the druid talent, the one i like the most are the "affinity" one. Those who allow you to be "a bit" of another spec while keeping your original one. This would be something i would love to see in PvP talent.

 

Right now i'm playing a lot my holy priest (and i love it), imagine if on a new row of talent, i have 3 choices, which are tied to each one of the spec : Discipline, Holy, Shadow. And each one gave me some untalented spells from the other spec, to increase my tools. Especially the utility ones. And if you choose the original affinity, you receive only some passive bonus to your role (Let's say, 5% more heal or damage), and a interesting buff to some "not that good" spells. (Renew for example.), or another old spell (Like the old trash buffs that i miss a lot.). Each spec doesn't need to receive the same amount of spells.

 

Exemple :

 

Holy :

+5% overall healing.

+50% heal on renew.

Prayer of Healing is instant. (The healing AoE which heal for nothing in PvP)

Increase the range of your healing spell by 5y.

 

Discipline :

New spell : Shield.

New spell : Penance.

 

Shadow :

+5% damage.

New spell : Shadow Word : Pain

New spell : Mind flay.

 

I took those spells absolutely randomly, but you see the idea. A discipline priest could receive renew and prayer of mending for picking the holy one, same for the shadow one.

 

Choices, choices, choices.

Because the random name generator might pump out Lortfanden, which sounds like a pretty generic fantasy Warrior name in English, until you realize it means "Shit Fuck" in Danish.

This would be a perfect opportunity to ask them why their ladder is so badly fucked up.

 

Speaking of it, how do you find out the rank of a player at 1000 rating nowadays? You used to be able to just right click the armory, do arenamate/xunamate not have the access to that kind of information anymore? I've asked GMs about this and they answered that they themselves don't have access to it and that it's supposedly a website issue that's being worked on.... but then again, trusting a GM when it comes to pvp...

Xunamate still works for sniping, unless am I missing something. It shows all players above rank 970. Or what kind of sniping were you talking about?
